It’s no secret that comic book shops have had a rough go of it during the COVID crisis. From distribution being temporarily shut down, to people sheltering in place, to figuring out curb-side pick up or delivery, it hasn’t been easy. Well, Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard wanted to see if they could do something for the shops. Turns out there’s this character named Negan and there might be some story left to tell there…

NEGAN LIVES #1, a special one-shot that catches us up with everyone’s favorite villain, will be here at EC this July 1st! “While Charlie Adlard and I had laid the series to rest, this felt like something special we could do for the store owners who made our series a success to begin with,” says Robert.

July 1st is also the release day of the FIRE POWER, VOL. 1: PRELUDE original graphic novel and the FCBD FIRE POWER #1 free promotional comic, both by Kirkman and co-creator/artist Chris Samnee!

Here’s an introduction to the new comic:

Spurned by a slowly rebuilding society, Negan lives a life of desperate isolation … or does he? In the tradition of HERE’S NEGAN, this all-new story in NEGAN LIVES #1 gives readers a glimpse into what has happened to one The Walking Dead’s most popular characters in the time since his last appearance in THE WALKING DEAD #174.

As long-time readers of the post-apocalyptic survival series will recall, THE WALKING DEAD #174 proved to be a pivotal point for Negan, as he was tracked down and confronted by a vengeful Maggie, still heartbroken and furious over the murder of her husband, Glenn, in THE WALKING DEAD #100.
